URS tell us that their new N4 series equalizer digitally recreates the sound of a vintage British Six Band Equalizer (4 bands plus HP/LP Filters). Here's what they have to say about it...
The URS N4 series equalizer is very broad banded and musical. It is a must have tool for recording and sweetening drums and bass. It is smooth and silky and a little goes a long way.
It has a hi-pass filter with four frequencies- 27Hz, 47Hz, 82Hz, 150Hz and 270Hz.
It has a lo-pass filter with five frequencies- 3.9k, 5.6k, 8.2k, 10k, 12k, and 18k.
The Low Band is selectable peak or shelving and is selectable with five frequencies- 33 Hz, 56 Hz, 100 Hz, 180 Hz, and 330 Hz.
The Low Mid band has ten frequencies - 220Hz, 270Hz, 330Hz, 390Hz, 470Hz, 560 Hz, 680 Hz, 820 Hz, 1k and 1.2k.
The High Mid band has ten frequencies - 1.5k, 1.8k, 2.2k, 2.7k, 3.3k, 3.9k, 4.7k, 5.6k. 6.8k and 8.2k.
The "Hi-Q" button on the mid bands selects a narrower bandwidth.
The High band is selectable peak or shelving and is selectable with six frequencies- 10k, 3.3k, 4.7k, 6.8k,10k, and 15k.
